Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) May 29, 2008
PolicyStat LLC, a leading provider of policy lifecycle management software for healthcare organizations, announces that St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana has implemented the PolicyStat solution to manage all policies and procedures hospital-wide.
St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana has been the #1 provider of overall cardiac care in Indiana for the past three years according to HealthGrades. Recognizing the critical role that effective policy and procedure management plays in delivering the highest quality of care and patient safety, St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana sought a comprehensive policy management solution for its needs and selected PolicyStat.
According to Lisa Sorenson, Process Leader for Quality/Safety/Risk for St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana, "PolicyStat has helped us provide terrifically easy access to policies to our team members. The system has given us the ability to better manage policies through strong search and workflow capabilities. During recent surveys by both the Indiana State Department of Health and the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP), policy access was much quicker and smoother. Even the surveyors were impressed by PolicyStat's functionality."
PolicyStat's web-based offering delivers complete lifecycle management of medical policies and procedures, robust administrative and tracking functions, and quick user access for all St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana team members - staff, caregivers, process area leaders and administrators alike.
"At St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana, exceptional quality and service are the key components of our mission," said John Stewart, CEO of St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana. "We accomplish these goals through physician leadership, teamwork and having data-driven processes. PolicyStat has completely transformed the ongoing process of maintaining current and accurate policies and procedures which is critical for the best clinical outcomes. We have been ranked in the top 5% of all hospitals nationally for the past three years, and now a complete electronic process for managing well over a thousand different policies helps assure we are compliant with applicable statutes and standards while making them easily accessible to any team member immediately. Policies are not helpful when they are on a shelf in an office two floors away."
Steve Ehrlich, president of PolicyStat said, "We are very pleased to have the opportunity to partner with such a highly respected and nationally-known healthcare organization. We are honored to play this important role in St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana's continuing efforts to deliver the best heart care in Indiana."
